Victoria Mayor asks residents to billet with the homeless

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show , Senior Edmonton Sun Columnist Lorne Gunter joined me to discuss the Victoria, BC Mayor's solution to the housing crisis: billeting. 

In typical left-wing fashion, this is all just virtue signaling. The Mayor, Lisa Helps, excluded herself from consideration after claiming she has too many "confidential documents" in her house.

At this rate, it won’t be long before the government orders people to take in fake refugees into their own homes.

Typica Left Wing hypocrite. Not as I do , just as I say. Hasn’t Canada had enough of these two faced , lying , Left Wingers? As one post said, the Left ideology in itself is not evil, but it sure attracts a lot of evil people.

Sounds like a great idea. Only hippy leftists will take her up on that idea so when they turn up dead it will be no loss to society.

If this nutjob mayor believed in this policy, then why doesn’t she move the “documents” to her very plush offices and let the homeless live with her???

Also, she is saying that she cannot trust the homeless in her home by using the excuse that she has important documents in her home. But anyone else who has any important documents OR valuables can trust homeless people to share their home?

What a crazy LibTard she is !! She has no common sense, logic, rational thinking AND she is in a position as the Mayor?? Surely there are many thousands of people that could do the job responsibly. How did she ever get voted into office?

Thanks for taking the time to listen to that Art… It does explain a lot and what we’re up against and possibly the futility of it..
Our future is already baked in the cake.

Reminds me of J.K. Rowling urging UK citizens to take in more Syrian refugees. How many, exactly, has she taken in & housed in any of her mansions? Um, zero. Virtue-signalling at its finest!

Cathy R….. She wasn’t elected by much of margin the last time around as people already sensed she was a bit of a nutbar from her previous days in civic politics… But the vote got split and you know how that works… Even since then she has has augmented that impression by making hippy-dippy statements on all manner of issues… And her accommodation of homelessness, welfare housing, and taking a soft stance on drug use around Victoria has got to be common knowledge across Canada… Hence the spillover traffic from the same cases in Vancouver and other “colder” municipalities…

Mayor of OZ.
Will anyone be swayed to take her advice and replace the Salvation Army & bring unknown persons into their homes?!!! I think the police chief should make a public statement outlining what a safety risk this is poses. Interview some homeless folks and ask them if the Mayor’s idea is problematic!
commented 2017-06-16 17:25:05 -0400
Aren’t the police always warning people to lock all your doors and windows when you aren’t at home or even when you are at home for safety? Never mind all that security nonsense, take them home to live with you, a total stranger who might be a deranged killer. Throw that idiot out of office. She’s a menace and disgrace to the city. Who would trust anything she has to say after this.

Hey, wait a minute! Didn’t Hillary have too many “confidential documents” in her basement (illegally) as well?!?! WTF? Where’s the probes and investigations? Since when does the Mayor get to take home documents from city hall? What the hell man?!
commented 2017-06-16 16:51:40 -0400
I was in Victoria last fall. What a f***ing disgrace. All you need to know about socialism. It is quite literally poverty pimping, the more homeless, the more dick heads oding on opiates, the more public money needed to slosh around on $100,000 a year “social workers” (also know as a fake, government jobs). Pathetic. Leviticus: Holy shit. Why am I not surprised?

B.C. capital’s new plan for dealing with homelessness: Have a homeless person live with you"
Foremost, Ms. Mayor please explain what confidential documents are doing at your residence??
Charity begins at home, lead the way let’s start the campaign with you & other city councillors, then extending it to the premier, and MLAs of the province. Then the teachers and all other govt. employees receiving 100K plus each year.
Another Shillary Clinton in making??

Sounds like she is a real Twit!

Definitely this Mayor should be nominated for the Grand Twit award!
Sounds suspiciously like Joseph Stalins policy of taking your home and dividing it up so more than one family can live in it.

Here is a thought, Was it not Pierre Trudeau that neglected to put a right to ownership of property in our new, loser of a constitution?

“The Mayor, Lisa Helps, excluded herself from consideration after claiming she has too many “confidential documents” in her house."

Interesting how the left leaning figureheads (governmental) constantly demand all sorts of things from the general populace yet they never make any personal sacrifices or take a cut/freeze in wages.

Wynne government gives public employees a raise despite deep red ink
— Appeared in the Ottawa Sun, June 14, 2017
Earlier this week, Premier Wynne’s government offered a four-year contract extension to Ontario government workers with 7.5 per cent pay raises over the life of the deal. This follows a two-year extension recently offered to teachers and education workers, which includes a four per cent raise.

What a crock! Of course she has no such documents in her home, but it makes for a great excuse. Perhaps they should stop spending at City Hall & help these people out. In other words, do as I say & not as I do. The lunatic left with their stupid ideas, instead of common sense solutions.

In Germany they are confiscating personal property to accommodate Islam. I think this socialist loser is testing the waters here.

The homeless live from day to day..
They know that fundamentally they have no future.
To jerk the slack out of your municipal government people
en-mass should withhold property taxes until they are brought to heel..
By suggesting that she has too many personal and confidential documents in her home she is either suggesting that it’s OK for us because we have nothing of value that we keep in our houses or that her right to privacy is greater than yours..

After a time certain parts of your brain start to severely atrophy. The constant exposure to fairy tales in adulthood repress common sense and kills your natural defense against danger. Discernment and the ability to discriminate between nonsense and common sense go out the window. It is probably too late for this woman, but my prescription would be a tour of one of the many war zones in the M.E. or closer to home the clean up crew after a ‘truck’ attack.
Maybe it is the second hand pot smoke everywhere in Lotus land, or first hand over consumption. Ask yourselves, people who voted her into office, is this woman really fit to be in charge of your community? Sad and truly pathetic.

Who votes for these socialist lunatics?
commented 2017-06-16 13:24:07 -0400
What’s her address so I know where to drop them off?
commented 2017-06-16 13:22:21 -0400
Sure the police would find it interesting when you told them. I invited a homeless person into my home just like the Mayor said and now. My car is gone my wallet is gone the booze cabinet has been broken into and my dog is missing.
